Dr. Heather Rassel, D.C. took up chiropractic as a career but more like a “way of life” just like her parents, Drs. Ed and Linda Rassel. Her two sisters, aunt, uncles, cousins, and niece are all in the chiropractic field as well. Counting all the extended family members (through marriage too) there are about 30 chiropractors in the Rassel family!
Dr. Rassel grew up in Haslett, MI and was an extremely active kid who loved to be a part of many different groups, including various sports and the arts, especially soccer and vocal music. She attended Michigan State University, ten miles down the road, then moved to Marietta, GA to get her chiropractic degree from Life University. Dr. Rassel graduated in 2000, also starting her family that same year. 🙂
In 2004 Dr. Rassel moved back to Michigan and helped open and operate Van Skyhock Family Chiropractic in Traverse City, and then a second location in Mesick in 2007 (currently with different owners). At the end of 2011, she focused her energy on starting Pure Chiropractic ~ A Membership Practice in the Grand Traverse Mall, which exemplifies her personal mission; “to provide convenient and affordable chiropractic care to all who want it!”
Dr. Rassel enjoys an active lifestyle outside of her practice with her husband, Scott Lankford and their blended family of 5 beautiful children. She also enjoys downtown festivities in Traverse City, spending time with girlfriends, yoga, golf, traveling, and relaxing on Lake Michigan beaches.
